What beautiful park in the middle of the city. You can walk through and not even know you're in the city. The view from the lake is beautiful.

Quick walk through it before closing time (one hour). Absolutely lovely. A haven in the centre of Tokyo.

Right in Shinjuku, this park is a wonderful getaway. It’s surprising how large this park is. It’s quiet and relaxing to walk around. There is a lot of parking too.

Words can’t explain how beautiful this place is .. so quiet and tranquil and for us some much needed green time out of the concrete jungle. If it’s a hot day make sure you take some sort of cover as it’s a reasonable walk around...More

Husband and I went for an afternoon walk and thought it was most beautiful. Good break from the pace of traditional Tokyo.

There is no shortage of lovely parks and gardens in Japan. Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is no exception. I recommend visiting this park IF you are in Shinjuku and near the park. I would not suggest a special trip if you are outside the area.

This summer was far too hot to spend any real quality time in the park during the day. However, this park proved some sheltered areas which proved a Godsend in between walks.

Oasis in Tokyo. You can enjoy Japan; Japanese style garden, Maccha-tea..., There is a locavore restaurant. After strolling the garden, you can have a lot of options around Shinjuku area. 都会のオアシス。 洋式庭園もあるが、静かな空間で日本文化を楽しめる。 例えば、日本式庭園、呈茶など。 地産地消のレストランが園内にあった。

Hey Nick, tourist attractions in Japan are always very busy (compared to Australia) and this park is no exception. The day of the week might make a big difference so I’d suggest maybe a weekday over a weekend. If you arrive... More

The dark pink blossoms stay for a few more weeks. So Shinjuku Gyoen will do just fine :)

Stayed at Citidines Hotel Shinjuku 5 minutes walk from train station, supermarket, gardens. Very central see my review. We travelled by train everywhere except a day tour to Mt Fuji.
